Recapturing the Wonder of Christmas

Timothy Cross | Truth for all Time

ISBN: 9781846256578 | Day One Code: RWC6578

£6.00

The trend in our current society is to celebrate and remove all reference to any religious, let alone Biblical basis to Christmas. ‘Goodness, they are bringing religion into Christmas ... What next?’ is a common feeling of a busy shopper on seeing a nativity scene in a shopping centre. This precious and warm celebration has become increasingly secular over the years. Few would deny that materialism has taken over almost completely. This book seeks to counter the current trend. It explains and informs the reader as to the true meaning of Christmas, and explores the different aspects Christians have come to believe, know and rejoice
about Christmas. Whilst this book is definitely seasonal, its message is also eternal, for the purpose of Christ’s incarnation is eternal. ‘You shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins’ (Matthew 1:21). The Good News underlying Christmas is that when the Christmas experience actually happens in us, and
the living Lord Jesus is known in our hearts, then the Christmas joy is not just
seasonal but everlasting.

COMMENDATIONS

One has become very conscious of a need in the Christian book world of a general introduction to and explanation of the subject of Christmas. A faithful presentation of the incarnation of our Saviour, Jesus Christ, is the need of the hour. The trend in our current society is to remove all reference to any religious, let alone biblical basis to Christmas. ‘Goodness, they are bringing religion into Christmas … What next?’ is a common feeling of a busy shopper on seeing a nativity scene in a shopping centre. This precious and warm celebration has become increasingly secular over the years. Few would deny that materialism has
taken over almost completely. The chapters which follow in this book seek to counter the current trend. They explain the true meaning of Christmas, and explore the different aspects we have come to believe and know about Christmas as committed Christians. Whilst this book is definitely seasonal, its message is also eternal, for the purpose of the incarnation is eternal. ‘You shall call his name Jesus, for he shall save his people from their sins.’ The good news underlying
Christmas is that when the Christmas experience actually happens in us,
and the living Lord Jesus is known in our hearts, then the Christmas joy is
not just seasonal but everlasting. Veiled in flesh the Godhead see! Hail, the incarnate Deity! May this little book remind us of the eternal truths and lasting
joys underlying Christmas.

Rev. Mark Pearce, Saltmead Presbyterian Church, Cardiff.
